Post by Gealach » Sun Mar 9, 0:21 2003

okay...this is a great book...i think...i'm only halfway through it but i love it! and i cant remember the author's last name...but i'll get it here soon! and man i love it...it's from a Second Wave femininst's (so she calls herself) point of view on advice for feminists today. she was active in the 60's-70's...her mother and all the women around her were very concevitive and she still got through w/o ne roll models...it gives helpful advice about how we shouldn't look at anti-feminists as completely different in everything...it's great...it also gives a bit of the history of feminism...telling of some internal problems they faced and how to overcome them now....a must read!

Not really my type of reading, sorry G.

I read Chessler's "On Women and Madness"...excellent. I shall have to grab this one while I do my online library thing. Oh, yeah...the author of "The Women's Room", Marilyn French, has one out that I'm reading..."Mother's and Daughters"...so far, it's pretty good.
